you know, i can also say that it's clear comcast is absolutely doing something.

being IA webmaster, i can directly upload via ssh/scp or rsync to our servers files in the 100s+ MB range.

what i see is a very fast upload for about the first 10-20 seconds, and then it plummets. EVERY time. interestingly, if i want to make my upload go faster, when i watch the upload bitrate plummet, i can "pause" the upload, wait about 30+ seconds, then resume. and i see the exact same "FAST" for a bit, then plummets. so it's clearly comcast (my provider).

i suspect we are all paying for X b/sec uploads, but if we all actually used it, they'd run out of headroom. thus, they put in throttling.

Comcast vs. ftp has not been directly in the news so much or in governamental sights, but it makes sense that they might throttle multiple protocols if they were messing with one.
